Snodland Food Assist By Snodland Food Assist

We want to continue our food bank to help more people within the Snodland area. Many families cannot afford food or toiletries. We want to continue to provide these on a weekly or emergency basis.

Snodland Idea stage

We will continue to provide food and toiletries to needy families and individuals within the Snodland area. Although a large amount of goods are donated by local businesses and residents of Snodland, this still doesn't cover all the major food groups. We therefore have to purchase some items ourselves to add to the food boxes. These are mainly, fresh fruits, vegetables, milk, bread and meat. These are high cost items but essential for good health. Monies raised will enable us to supply these additional products to the residents of Snodland that are most in need of our help.

What we'll deliver:

  • Regular food boxes to the people that need them
  • All children being able to have breakfast before going to school
  • Families eating a good selection of fresh and not just tinned goods

Why it's a great idea:

This project continues to address the situation that many people are finding themselves in where they cannot afford food. We will provide healthy food and toiletries in order to assist them and ensure they are not hungry. There is a large demand for this food bank within the area. We will continue to ensure that people are able to take care of their basic hygiene needs, along with food, which will help their mental health as they will be able to feel better about themselves whilst not struggling for food to eat. Everyone should have nutritious food to eat and that is what our target is. There is quite a dramatic financial gap between the households within the Snodland area. By providing this assistance we can help to bridge some of that gap by at least ensuring that everyone, no matter their income bracket, can have access to good, healthy food.

Steps to get it done:

  • Purchase necessary food and toiletries
  • Deliver or arrange collection of complete food/toiletry boxes
